Some lovely ceramics both ancient and modern, especially a complete wonderful tiled kitchen and seats and tables all ceramic. The Palacio makes a wonderful backdrop for these but is also full of wonderful things in its own right. Wonderful rococo rooms, beautifully furnished, lovely quirky ceilings, two coaches and so on. Lots to see and marvel at.

This place could have been the Las Vegas of the 18th century when too much is too much. Well worth the visit, even if this is not you piece of cake. Also, there is a very extensive collection of ceramics.

We scampered over and got there just 20 minutes before close. What a place ... mixed in with the Ceramics Museum, which really is interesting. The building is pretty hard to miss. I've never seen such an over decorated building ... and I found it gleefully excessive. My husband and I just stood there, giggling and taking pictures.

The ceramics were displayed in a time line which was very well thought out. Look out for the Picasso plates. There are information cards in several languages in all of the rooms pointing out the history of them and highlighting some of the objects in each. The museum is free on Saturday afternoons and Sundays but admission times may differ... More

Arrival at this beautiful former palace will certainly make your jaw drop and upon entering the multi roomed building the magic continues. Many of the rooms display 18th / 19th century palace life, from the ground floor located carriages through kitchen, dining, bed, washing, ballrooms etcetera, most of which are portrayed in their original gothic style. As the name implies... More

Take advantage of the free entrance on Saturday afternoons and Sundays (although 2.- Euro is not that much). Outstanding decorations and room distributions. The old kitchen has to be seen, as well as the carriages at the ground floor. Visit can take around 30 minutes.

The building is ancient but the front has been re-designed in 1863 and it shows the actual magnificence. The entry portal is astonishing. Inside you will find a nice museum of ceramics: interesting to understand the history of the Valencia ceramic and to discover this beautiful colour gold-like applied in XIX century.

Free to visit on Sunday, this museum is really magnificent...the ceramic displays are lovely but I was most wowed by the stunning rooms that are so carefully presented and have been maintained so well. A visit is like steping back in time. There are some English language translation sheets inside each room on the upper floors, but nothing really on... More
